Abstract

A video game system such as a soccer vide game employs a couple of teams each having a plurality of player characters displayed on a monitor screen. At least one of said teams is under the control of a game player through a controller, while the other team is commanded by the system CPU or another game player. The video game system incorporates a device for setting commands. The device has a registration picture displaying function for enabling, prior to the start of the same, the monitor screen to display a registration picture including a plurality of commands of different contents which can be given to the team under the control through an operation of a controller, together with signs of command inputting members which belongs to the controller and which are to be used for inputting the commands to the video game system. The device also has a command setting function which registers, by means of the controller, the commands displayed in the registration picture in relation to the signs of the command inputting members so that the video game system executes each registered command in response to an operation of the associated command inputting member by the game player after the start of the game. Disclosed also is a method of setting commands, as well as a storage medium storing a program for setting the commands. Further disclosed are devices and methods for displaying guides for the game players, replaying a scoring scene, setting player character data and displaying kicker and goalkeeper cursors in a PK match mode of the game, as well as storage mediums storing programs implementing these functions.
